Who Says Money Isn’t A Good Gift? 

For most of us, crunching numbers (managing our money) is an essential part of the holiday season – just like yule logs, ball drops, and that “yummy?” fruit cake, although maybe not quite as joyous. On this 10th day of Kubernetes we’ll focus on the importance of cost-efficiency and getting the most value out of your Kubernetes investments.
